Mujhay Baar Baar (Hindi: मुझे बार बार, Urdu: مُجھے بار بار) literally, "To me, again and again", but translated as "Don't call out for me again and again", is a beautiful poem written by the contemporary poet Hazrat "Baba" Gulzar Sabri.

The music has a deep, modern, orchestral ambiance; it was produced by the internationally acclaimed Pakistani band "Strings", experts in creating this sort of Sufi-fusion arrangements.
They are also co-producers of Coke Studio Pakistan.

The singer is Abbas Ali Khan, who is known for rendering Sufi poetry with modern instruments and adapted to the modern sensibility.
He has released Mujhay Baar Baar as part of his Sufi album "Tamaam Alam Mast".
